Zara Stonely's Stable Mates seemed right up my alley though, so I took the plunge...into tedium. I love sprawling country dramas, but I found myself struggling through this one. Honestly, I made it about halfway through before I finally caved and skipped to the end to see who our heroine (used lightly) ends up with, and I was disgusted enough to not read any further. Not only are there no Rupert Campbell-Blacks to be found, but I unfortunately didn't care enough for any of the characters to really want to know what happened to them. This could possibly have been made better by loveable, well-charactered animals, but I found the few mentioned to be more nameless plot fodder than anything (so horse-lovers, look elsewhere).
Naturally, it's very British, and if you're like me and enjoy that type of writing...you'll give it three stars instead of two.
I did think the death of Marcus and how this put into motion all the chaos and angst of the Tippermereians over Folly Lake Manor and the wider equestrian centre took a little long to get going especially after the opening. I do get that there was quite a cast to introduce however so possibly that couldn't be helped. I liked Lottie but I honestly never bought Rory's love for her. There's charmingly aloof and then there's Rory. I didn't really root for Lottie to get her man so much as get over his wishy-washy nature. Still, I loved her interactions with her grandmother, Elizabeth and her fraught relationship with her father, Billy & uncle, Dom. Amanda was well done and I enjoyed Pip as well. I truly felt Stoneley was fabulous at describing the comedic chain reactions set off by people, dogs or horses, alike. It was very vivid in the telling and made me laugh throughout. I give nothing but kudos to all things related to "the wedding". It was perfect and everything you wonder about as you flip through Tatler. I was having Kyle/Chardonnay wedding flashbacks. There were plenty of sexy times throughout but I didn't think it was over done nor exceedingly spicy but it was fun. I do admit that I wasn't adoring any of the men as romantic options but they did serve their purposes well.
All in all, I'm very glad that I read this and I would read another by the author any time. Definitely recommended if you need something to read while travelling or on a weekend. It won't change your life but you'll have some fun.
This book was fantastically fun to read. It was a perfect mix of glamour, shenanigans and quirky fun! The story is set in two villages where we meet all sorts of characters ranging from the down to earth, the posh, the goth and the celebrities!! LOL The main focus of course on Lottie, our down to earth girl! The book is full of little mysteries which all add up to a brilliant read where you just want to find out what is going to happen next. I really liked how little pieces of information were given so we could slowly unravel all the mysteries in the characters histories.
This was really an unexpected FUN read that should not be missed by anyone. I would say I laughed at almost every page! Nicely done Ms Stoneley!
